The World 4 Degrees Warmer

By Parag Khanna

The entire population of the Arctic region today is less than 4 million. Could it be 400 million within the coming 20 years? This fascinating map from The British journal New Scientist outlines which geographies will produce the most food if temperatures rise 4 degrees Celsius and the biggest gainers are countries in the Arctic. In Connectography, I explain what a more populous Arctic would look like, and how it would impact the two largest countries in the world: Russia and Canada.
